I'm certainly no expert, but that surely looks like a refinish or a fake. Hard to tell with what little information is provided in the ad.
Exactly what he says.
I think they have the year wrong but I don't know when they offered a transparent red finish
but I think it was after they stopped calling them Broadcasters and we all know decals are easy to acquire.
Now, how much interest is there is a transparent red Broadcaster/Telecaster with a nicely made one piece
flamed/and/or/birdseye maple neck, modern repro pickups from a well known pickup maker (who likely makes
a nicer pickup than Fender did in the day), higher quality pots and switch, but otherwise vintage spec?
How about with the snakehead headstock?
How about an Esquire with Marauder style under the pickguard neck pickup (looks single, but really is two pickup
model using two rows of magnets to bump the mag field to the strings) and other wise vintage specs?
That guitar's **TWIN** is for sale in NYC. I saw it on TDPRI the other day and was curious what it looked like. His writing style makes him seem earnest. "It's been in the family since 1959" like the clap. _________________ Yell Like Hell
Pretty awesome how the red prototype westy posted has the old Fender lapsteel pickup in it. I love those reused bits on old Fender prototypes like the Strats with Tele pickups/3-pickup Tele with prototype Strat trem and the other Tele prototype with a sideways '51 p-bass control plate.
I still want to make an Esquire in the style of the "snakehead" prototypes, just sneak a discrete treble bleed in somewhere.
which one of you bastards sent me an ebay question asking if you can get teh kurdtz with that 64 mustang?
fran & paul are some of the original gangstas of the JS days when you'd have to say "phuck"
